Summer Salad - with creamy raspberry dressing

Words elude me in describing this salad. It is simply... summer. The combination of the unusual creamy raspberry dressing, the colorful fruit, crunchy toasted almonds, and the tender crunchy hearts of romaine will make you want to savor this salad all by itself. Who needs a main dish anyway?

A good friend (a fantastic cook!) brought this to a lunch recently, and we had a hard time concentrating on the other things that were served that day. It was THAT good. I was lucky enough to get the recipe first - I’m selfish that way, and it doesn’t even make me embarrassed anymore... (THAT’S embarrassing!)

It’s important to use the real stuff here (mayo, half-and-half, jam - scrimping for low-fat and low-calorie is just so defeating) Besides, if you are like me, you won’t even want to bother with a main dish in addition to this terrific salad.
